Off-road ready! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

boobar-728x90-This Weekend Rundown sponsored by BooBar – Don’t miss their new patio!

We’re well into May, after having zoomed past Mother’s Day, Teacher’s Day (15), and Students Day (17).  Up north of the border schools are beginning to let out and yep, we’re starting to welcome an early trickle of Summer traffic. Weather reports tell us winds have been active, so before you take that sunset cruise be sure to check with your captain to see if the port’s open. Other than that, we’re still hanging in around the mid-80s – though last weekend sure seemed warmer than that – and barely, barely, barely beginning to fill a hint of humidity…rapidly pushed aside by the sea breeze.  Let’s get to it and run down the weekend!tiburones-abr2
